Today, I have an important announcement to share with you all.
On May 17th, The Blue Blog reached its third year anniversary! I must admit that this last year has gone way too quick. Normally, I would make a post (or a video) to celebrate this milestone in my blogging career, however I have found it very difficult to do so. If you want to know why, I am in the middle of my GCSE exams (which have been going really well so far) and it takes a lot of time to prepare something – alongside vital revision! Also, Club Penguin has been gone for almost 2 months now; obviously I cannot create any party or record any videos using Club Penguin. I am still finding it very hard to realise that it is gone forever.
Anyway, I want to say thank you to everyone who has been reading my blog for 1, 2 or even 3 years, now! Ever since I entered the Club Penguin Twitter community in 2014, I have been able to meet so many lovely people and it has been an honour to make posts for you all, even though I make hardly any! Blogging has been tremendously fun, tiring – and sometimes even frustrating, but that is what makes it rewarding.
Now, I have decided that The Blue Blog has reached its third – and final year.
In the past year, I have always hinted that I am constantly unsure about the future of this blog. I was mainly worried about the closure of Club Penguin and how it would affect The Blue Blog. While that has been an issue, I have come to other conclusions. First of all, The Blue Blog was designed to be a unique reading experience for Club Penguin fans. A lot of the old community has departed with the game, so I think it is fair to say that there is no point in continuing any Club Penguin posts. You may be thinking “But, wait! There’s Club Penguin Island!”. I have decided that I am not going to be blogging about Club Penguin Island on The Blue Blog. Not only is it difficult for me to grasp onto the new ways of sharing mobile apps, but the end of the Club Penguin era makes sense for The Blue Blog to sunset. A new beginning would be kind of lack lustre, considering I don’t see much posts in the long run and I would want it to be something special – not pointless.
Also, things are changing in my life and I am still at that stage where I am on the verge of moving on from Club Penguin – completely. Just to think that I have college a couple of months down the line indicates that it’s time for me to embark on new adventures. However, what only matters now is the reality that The Blue Blog will not be continuing its journey as of today. Technically, the journey ended a while ago, when I stopped making posts, however this is my last post…
The amount of memories I have made through this blog. Blogtober. So Long CP. Island Discussions. Everything.
The Blue Blog was not only a blog where I discussed things related to a game about penguins. It has been a mental journey that has had its ups and downs. I hate to think of it ending on a down, so I want to try and shed some light on this depressing announcement.
The journey of Blue21102 (Mister Blue Sky) has not ended. I still have time left to make even more memories! The Blue Blog has been a way of communicating my journey, but there are new things on the horizon – and I am excited! There is no way I am deleting this blog – ever! I will always keep it up and running since it has been run, entirely, on a free plan; yeah, kind of sad!
If any of you are aware of Penguin Chat: a podcast hosted by Daisydoo14 and I, make sure you stay tuned for the Season 1 finale podcast, which will be a livestream towards the end of May/beginning of June. It was meant to happen a lot earlier, however time has been a difficult competition. During the podcast, we will talk about Club Penguin (Island), The Blue Blog and we will talk to all of you who will watch it through a Q & A! I am hoping it will be a lot of fun and it will be the last Penguin Chat episode for a while.
Thank you to everyone who has read my posts, shared my posts, liked my posts and been a part of my posts. The Blue Blog has improved me, as a person and I am thankful for its existence. This is goodbye from The Blue Blog.
